    Archives is a compilation album by Darkest Hour, released on October 3, 2006 through A-F Records. The disc includes tracks from the band's first two independent EPs, 1996's The Misanthrope and 1999's The Prophecy Fulfilled. The audio for this release was re-mastered from the original master tapes. Unlike the band's more recent material, the following early work of Darkest Hour is much more hardcore orientated metalcore.
